    Default Monk Finishers removed

    So am I correct that the below Monk finishers have simply been removed from the game?

    Grasp the Earth Dragon
    Dance of Clouds
    Aligning the Heavens
    Walk of the Sun
    Moment of Clarity
    Pain Touch
    Falling Star Strike
    Freezing the Lifeblood
    Karmic Strike
    Curse of the Void
    Shining Star

    I've tried Shining Star and the finisher doesn't light, I can't try the dark ones as I only have a light monk.

    All light finishers are still available, you just have only one light move; fist of light. All the Shintao moves no longer count as light moves.

    No clue on the other finishers.

    I'll have to give them another try, I was trying earth/wind/fire and no finisher was coming up. Maybe I got lagged (repeatedly).

    I've used all of them except Moment of Clarity and Curse of the Void post U19. I don't have a monk with void anymore so I can't really test those.

    All still works.

    There can be confusion about which Feat you drag onto your hotbar though that changes into your finisher depending on the sequence you use - make sure it's the "group" Feat "Finishing Moves" and not one of the light or dark side icons.

    Okay, I was able to do all of them on my light monk last night except Moment of Clarity, since it appears only Hensian monks can now get a void strike (mine is Shinto).

    I am not sure what was going on before. Very strange. There has been much strangeness of late in the game. Especially in the Harbor where you can go in one door to the Wayward Lobster turn around to go thru the same door and come out in a completely different place.

    On a related note, however, does every body else now no longer have passive ki regeneration when just standing still. My ki bar says (0) in parenthesis and I can't regenerate ki without meditating or hitting something. It used to be that ki would regenerate up to your concentration score over time without doing anything.

    Still works fine for me.



    Do you have rank 3 in Contemplation or some other affect that gives you passive Ki regen?

    Previously, you would get Ki when you hit things and it would drop down to your Concentration score over time, not up to it from 0 without a passive ki regen effect - like ninja spy stealthed.

    EDIT: Are you in Master or Grandmaster Ocean Stance?

    My regen works as intended.

    What is your Concentration score?

    I found out what happened due to the input from others on the other thread, adding here for clarification for anyone else that might be wondering:

    My monk is Shinto, so I guess I will just change to water stance when I want the passive regen (in town or otherwise in transit). I am normally in air stance. Sometimes earth stance.

    Previously I had the capstone enhancement that did it all the time, it is still on the wiki:

    Choose the Monk Serenity capstone
    The Monk Serenity capstone enhancement changes your natural ki regeneration from 0 to +1. Alone, Monk Serenity will slowly recharge your ki to your stable pool state. With Greater Ocean Stance, you will regenerate +2 ki up to your stable pool, and an additional +1 ki up to approximately twice your stable pool.
    It also gave +2 wisdom and +10 concentration.

    I am not sure what to make of the changes to monk. I will miss Moment of Clarity, and will miss the Capstone but I like a lot of the other changes, although I think it makes monks a little more 'cookie-cutter' than maybe they used to be. There were so many options. Now we get most of the abilities auto-granted at levels and don't have to 'specialize' so much in an element, most of the choices are in the prestige trees. I'm not sure if it is good or bad.
